This is the Hour- a poem

T

My Christmas gift for you. I wrote a new poem about 2016. Hope you like it. Happy Christmas.

This is the Hour

Clock ticks 12,

Parties commence

Fireworks are in the sky

 

Who knew though,

That this show

Was going to go in overdrive?

 

Now is the time, to eulogise:

The death of compassion in society.

We’re gonna break down the doors,

breaking the law,

Cannibalise your brothers

 

Where are our heroes?

Where is the saint?

All we see are sinners!

 

Borders in place

Your free mind erased

And superman ain’t coming to save us!

 

Now is the time, to eulogise:

The death of compassion in society.

We’re gonna break down the doors,

breaking the law,

Cannibalise your sisters

 

Starman supernova as this star dies,

Harry has his mother’s eyes.

Then we press an eject seat.

 

Big business is in power

This is the hour

That we need our heroes to save us!

 

Now is the time, to eulogise:

The death of compassion in society.

We’re gonna break down the doors,

breaking the law,

Cannibalise your morals.
